I saw we had 2 donations this month ...
When I started this Project I intended it to be a free project, in many ways i think i just wanted to contribute something back to the world, I have been involved in quite a bit of projects before this one, some where money was involved and i HATED it ! , and so when i started Makulu I intended it to ALWAYS be fully free and never expected to ever ask or demand or scam or find ways to make people pay, infact even the idea of donations button was quite upsetting... But everyone kept convincing me to do it and I buckled and I guess at first it just seemed to be something that sort of filled the awkward gap that was in the side bar, but i made sure it was near the bottom and not right on top.
However, I never considered the running costs of the project, never expected user-base to explode and climb the Distro rankings so quickly, in fact i did not ever think i would even get onto the rankings ...
In the end I see a few guys donated here and there, and I just want to take this opportunity to say thank you, the donations have GREATLY assisted in taking the load off my shoulders with the Repo server box and website costs.
So thank you to all who donated, it is Very much appreciated and I will keep doing what i am doing and make every release special
